This work introduces us, by means of a series of vignettes, to the changes, large and small, that have taken place in Germany since the dismantling of the Wall. The author argues that the real fear about the new Germany is not the rise of neo-Nazism, but of a cult of righteousness, with its concomitant mistrust of foreigners and especially the threat of the creation of a moral vacuum for a nation so intent on forgetting the ghosts that haunt its past.


Before the fall; east-west passages; sentimental Germany; some people can even sleep through an earthquake; in Germany, Saigon wins - the Vietnamese in Berlin; two successful rogues; the genealogist; the deep-freeze theory and other hypotheses; three bad reasons and two good ones to fear the Germans; of dogs and Germans.
